Charlie Weaver was my boyfriend. I miss him so much. Charlie was the kind of man that lived everyday as if it was his last. He will never be forgotten....

Not sure who you are but Charlie and I were dating for the past almost year. I agree he will be greatly missed.

Your making it up who ever you are...for one I was raised in Turner. I knew his family...Charlie and I were together sence last May 2006... So did you go to the memorial? If you were with him what did he drive?

He bought a smaller 4 door white pickup shortly before the drowning and then of course had his government rig. I'm from Albany area.

Charlie and I were going to get married and build on to his white house out on the farm and have a baby.. I just can't believe 5 years have passed...Miss him so much:( His friend told me a few months after he passed that the year of 2006 was going to be his last trip to Alaska as a fisherman guide because he wants to start a life with me.. That was just so inspirational to know that. I feel his presents every day:)

Chadd, I wasn't one of the girls you want to STFU about your brother so next time, be sure you're judging all comments fairly. My comment was about having to subscribe to the paper in order to read ONE article online - not about your brother at all. My condolences to you, your family, and his friends on the loss.

To The Mom,

I wasn't including you in those comments. Please know that! I'm sorry you took it that way! Plus, I agree with you, I wouldn't subscribe just for that either.

It's been 6 yrs today that we found Charlie and It still feels like yesterday.

Rest in PEACE big brother!

I love you!
